He started playing sensibly along with his senior partner, Samuels. Ajmal started the 39th over with a new batsman on the crease. He just gave four runs in that over as the West Indies moved on to 112 for the loss of six wickets.
The home side was truly under pressure by the Pakistani spinners.
Rehman started the 40th over of the innings and bowled the first five balls of the over superbly, however, Samuels hit a defiant six on the last ball, taking the total to 118 at the loss of six.
The pair went on playing patiently and responsibly, building a handy partnership between them.
The duo went ahead full speed, hitting boundaries whenever they could, however, a stunner by washed away their plans. Sammy again lofted a ball straight over the head of the bowler in the 49th over but before the ball could sail over
the boundary, Akmal rushed in from long-off and took a stunner of a catch.
With the catch, the hosts lost their Skipper at a very crucial juncture. At the end of the 50th over, West Indies were 145 for the loss of seven wickets as was batting on naught and Samuels was at 44.
